Art Exhibit: The Art of Jad Fair

Viewers find the same combination of whimsy and monstrosity in Jad Fair’s visual art that they discovered in his band, Half Japanese. Recurring motifs include the Beatles, horses, birds, and gleeful monsters on a rampage. All works testify to a visionary spirit in touch with a brighter world. Despite the body count, Fair’s work suggests nothing morbid. It’s more like the fantasies of adventure, bigness, and freedom inspired by stories from Maurice Sendak to midnight monster flicks. Just as much as the prelapsarian Trees of Life, they are expressions of innocent joy. More than 100 of Fair’s works will be on display at Gallery Wolfy Part II through September 1. An opening reception is set for 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, August 10. That will be followed at 10 p.m. by a live musical performance by the artist at Pat’s in the Flats. Gallery Wolfy II is at 2676 West 14th St. The opening reception is free. Tickets for the 10 p.m. performance are $10 at wolfypartii.blogspot.com.
